"A gently perfumed style, soft, with a touch of inner sweetness. Very fine in texture with well-balanced acidity and a long, red-fruited finish. This has a svelte, tapered shape, silky and pure."
Winemakers tasting notes: Serve at 12 to 14°C. Much more than a rosé, our Tavel is a “grand vin”. Its deep aromatic complexity and its very special balance are the hallmarks of a great wine. The nose defines the identity of this wine. The attack on notes of spice opens onto a cocktail of red fruit and white fruit. Gorgeous generous mouth where the wide diversity of aromas of fruits combines with a structure that defines the balance of this wine. The finish takes you back to the very first notes of spice. A grand vin that delights gastronomes.
About the Producer
A delightful family-owned Château just outside the village of Tavel with 70 hectares of vines, all surrounding the Château. The land was purchased in 1595 by Louis Joseph d’Aqueria, and the current family owners, purchased the estate in 1919.
(HVE) Haute Valeur Environnementale
Environmentally-friendly wine-growing is nothing new at Château d’Aqueria. It is a state of mind and our identity. For over 20 years, Château d’Aqueria has applied deeply-rooted undertakings:
A weather station located in the heart of the vineyard is used to develop study models which reduce human intervention to the strict minimum.
Organic fertilization uses leaves, vine shoots and other noble organic matter, crushed at the foot of each vine-plant, which provide the soil with natural balance and stability.
Every application in the vineyard takes environmental impact into consideration.
Wine Press / Awards
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast "Year after year, this mouthwatering rosé is an approachably priced, stand-out pick amid an excellent lineup of Tavel bottlings. It's weighty and concentrated yet always invigorating, packed with crisp-tart blackberry and black-cherry flavors marked by complexities of bramble, garrigue and earth. A wine worth drinking beyond the summer months, it should fare beautifully through 2023."
92 Points Decanter "A gently perfumed style, soft, with a touch of inner sweetness. Very fine in texture with well-balanced acidity and a long, red-fruited finish. This has a svelte, tapered shape, silky and pure."
